The Kimball Junction Transit Center was vandalized earlier this week after someone shattered a glass door and caused damage to an inside wall, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

At around 5:40 a.m., dispatch received a report from the Summit County Public Works employee that someone had broken the stone off of one of the pillars and threw it at large glass door, damaging a bench and wall inside the transit center, located on the west side of State Road 224 behind the Sheldon Richins Building on Landmark Drive.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the suspect was likely a transient man who was last seen wearing a neon-green coat, black beanie and dark pants. He was described as about 5’10, with light brown hair. He has not been located.

“Our detectives are working really hard to try and find this guy. We don’t know if it is the same guy that we have had shown up there in the past and had asked to move along, but we are trying to get surveillance from nearby businesses,” said Lt. Andrew Wright, with the Sheriff’s Office. “We have had some transient people come through there in the past, but this was by far the most significant incident since it was opened.”

By Thursday afternoon, the door had been boarded up and all the debris removed.

The Summit County and Park City Councils had a ribbon cutting in December for the Kimball Junction Transit Center December. It was built to serve as a bookend to the Old Town Transit Center. The building is open daily from 5:30 a.m. until 1 a.m.
